What role does Wellesley play?

U.F.W. foster boycott 
Of Gallo wines 



By Renee Edel '78 



"We'll have to work to clear 
this area of bad grapes and Gallo 
Wines." said Bob Clark, boycott 
organizer in the Boston urea lor 
the United Farm Workers Union. 
He and Diane Cohen, also a 
boycott coordinator, spoke at the 
organizational meeting for the 
Chaplaincy Farm Workers Pro- 
ject, which was held October I. 

A shipment of grapes had arriv- 
ed at Wellesley College on 
September 30. After being check- 
ed by Michael Sullivan, coor- 
dinator for the Project who also 
works in the Pomeroy kitchen, the 
grapes were found to be non-U. F. 
W. grapes. "The produce was 
misrepresented as being U. F. W. 
We'll have to get a blanket en- 
dorsement from the Senate sup- 
porting the boycott on all farm 
workers' produce so this doesn't 
happen again," he said to the 
sludents at the meeting. 

The U. F. W. coordinators in 
the Boston area have gotten the 
Boston chain liquor stores to 
agree not to sell Gallo Wines. 
Now the U. F. W. is working to 
get individual stores to support 
the boycott. 

In order to view the farm 
workers situation in another part 
of the country, the group saw a 
film. The movie was entitled Why 



We Boycott and it showed a con- 
frontation between members of 
(he U. F. W. U. and the 
Teamsters Union in the fields. 

The main goal established at 
the meeting was to support the 
boycott against Gallo Wines and 
in so doing, increase awareness of 
the farm workers' cause in the 
college community. 



Wilma Scott Heide. twice presi- 
dent of NOW, the National 
Organization for Women, and 
currently a guest-in-residence at 
Wellesley, will participate with 
the Residency Office in a planned 
Residence Hall lecture series Ms. 
Heide recently discussed her 
perception of the series. "Gel 
Together," scheduled to begin Oc- 
tober 22. 

Ms. Heide sees her role in the 
series and as guest-in-residence to 
be a "catalyst, u stimulant to the 
development of the leininisi 
perspective at Wellesley." 

"There's no doubt that 
Wellesley College is committed to 
excellent education for women 
Now, the college must ask itself il 
it is preparing well-educated 
women for adjustment in a man's 
world, or for leadership in a world 
of people. Of course, these two 
ideas are not the same thing." 

This question of Wellesley's 
role in changing the male-oriented 
society will set the theme «>f the 
lecture series Ms Heide discuss- 
ed some proposals that could help 
Wellesley College become a more 
integral part in this transforma- 
tion. 

First Ms Heide suggested a 
feminine critique of .ill the 
courses, course materials, social 
life and the life in general at 
Wellesley. This, she lee-Is. would 



Coffeehouse plans promise 
Livelier, more active season 



By Erica Scatlergood '75 

The Schneider Center 
Coffeehouse, located in the base- 
ment of Schneider Center, has 
begun a new program of live 
entertainment on Wednesday and 
Friday nights, along with the sale 
of wine and beer. On Tuesday and 
Thursdays, the coffeehouse 
remains open in order that the 
students may use the jukebox and 
pinball machines located there. 

Coffeehouse Director Sue Pinto 
'75 feels thai the coffeehouse i- a 
long-needed college activity; so 
far student response seems to bear 
her out. 

The opening night was 
September 27, when Dave Misch. 
a comedian-folk singer per- 
formed. All of the talent hails 
from the Boston-Cambridge area. 
Some of the events scheduled for 
this semester include: a black 



Soul-ja// group called Black 
Complexity on December 13th, a 
night of women's music on 
November IJih and various 
guitarists, one ol whom also plays 
the ukclclc and yodels. 

S O I C has given the 
coffeehouse SI. 250 per semester 
to pay for the entertainment and 
proceeds from the food selling arc 
expected to pay the students who 
serve as bartender and checker. In 
compliance with state law, only 
those who are over eighteen years 
old will be served liquor. 

The setting is intimate, ac- 
commodating an estimated fifty 
people easily. There are tables to 
eat at around the performance 
area and wall decorations ol In

Turgeon of the Schneider Food 
Services.

help rid education ol sexist 
language, approaches, and ul- 
timately, soist ways of thinking. 
This revaluation is vital since, i 
Ms. Heide put it. "the extent to 
which an institution is not 
feminist, it is sexist." 

Another important step for 
Wellesley lo lake according lo 
Ms. Heide, is the unification of 



ihe different groups on campus in- 
terested in feminism. These 
groups include, ihe Women's 
Committee; Student Information 
Services; and "9-5." the organiza- 
tion of college office workers. 

A unification of these groups, 
Ms Heide feels would be in- 
valuable for ihe exchange of 
resources and mutual support and 



an aclual ability to accomplish 
goals. 

Finally. Ms. Heide suggested 
that Wellesley College speak out 
more on issues of the (lay, par- 
ticularly those involved in feminist 
problems, including education, 
population control and religion.

New food services system 
Offers greater advantages 



By Margaret Draper "77 

The large deficit in Food Ser- 
viecs Department last year 
necessitated dramatic changes lor 
1974-5. Due to this deficit, 
Slialer s dining hall was closed 
and Clafiin's was converted lo a 
central bake shop: in addition, (he 
administration announced lhal 
Stone/Davis, Munger. and Becbe 
would not serve meals on the week

changes, ihe Food Services 
Department promised io comply 
With three student requesls: a 
choice of two e-nlrecs at lunch and 
dinner, longer serving hours, and 
a continental breakfast weekdays 
Irom S30-9:00. This week. 
NEWS investigated the lirsi reac- 
lions lo ihe monlh-old dining hall 
policy. 

Ms Elizabeth Cornwall, Direc- 
tor ol Food Services, is very 
enthusiastic about the new svsteni

vegetarians now usually have one-

WECG sponsors 
Recycling program 



WECG, Wellesley En- 
vironmental Concerns group, has 
announced its plans to begin a 
campus wide recycling program. 
Melissa Weiksnar '77 and 
( 1 1 ■ -I \ ii Mosher '77. are the co- 
ehairpersons of ihe- group which 
recently held its first dinner 
meeting. Fifty girls indicated an 
interest in WLCG in some capaci- 
ty- 

The purpose of the 
or- inizutionaj meeting was to m- 
form interested sludents as to 
w ECG's activities (nole: This 
function will be accomplished 
throughout this year by a bulletin 
bo. nd in Schneider Center). The 
meeting s most important objec- 
live was to se-i WECG's goals for 
lirsi semester projects 

The most pressing goal ol 
WECG is the Recycling Program. 
The program shall be instituted 
In si on ihe dormitory level. 
House Presidents were- briefed on 
the status of recycling, and those 
dorm- wilhoul ,i recycling 
program are urged to organize 
one. The proposed recycling 
program works as follows 

Paper lying could he counted as 
week work, or weekend rotation 
work. As an alternative lo hells, ii 
is a popular suggestion. The tied 
paper then goes lo Green Hall. 



Green has only a limited recycling 
program. There are hopes to 
enlarge ihe program but with the 
present work program and rc-Npcc- 
live slafl and lime allocations, the 
chances for an expanded recycling 
program in non-dorms on campus 
in uncertain. 

The goal for ihe future is a un- 
iiorm policy lor ihe ad- 
ministrative and individual 
departments. To this end, (he 
CEG. Ihe Commission on En- 
vironmental Concerns, was es- 
tablished In Preside-ill Newell in

recycling policy may follow this 
imiial meeting.

Program. WECG hopes lo spon- 
sor ii -erics of environmental 
speakers and films, a clothing

Politicking threatens 
Summer internships 

Last summer's Los Angeles interns were greeted, at their 
first meeting with the announcement that future Los 
Angeles programs might be canned for financial reasons. 

Indeed it appears that all internships on campus are in 
serious financial difficulties. 

And although President Newell has expressed her in- 
terest in the internship programs, somehow the funding 
(after this summer) of subsequent internships might never 
appear. 

Everyone wants to see the internships continue, from the 
Administration to the students. But what is the College do- 
ing about internships and fieldwork programs on campus? 

Well, they are talking about it. And talking about it. A 
committee on fieldwork is presently meeting to work out a 
new form of fieldwork programs. A final draft of their 
report is not yet out, but the first draft dealt mainly with 
hypothetical fieldwork programs ... not internships. 

Fieldwork is important, we wish there were more oppor- 
tunities for supervised fieldwork at Wellesley. 

Bui the internships are a different form of matter. 
Internships are not activities in addition to academic work. 
They are a total living and learning experience within the 
field of interest to the intern. Internships give students an 
opportunity to do what they want to do, without having to 
worry about living expenses. 

Internships are not only popular for students on campus, 
but faculty members have noticed the transformation which 
many interns undergo as a result of their summer 
placements. 

The College funds a student leadership conference every 
year, and manages to fund a number of other projects and 
activities which can only be labeled frivolous if not simply 
low-priority. 

Instead, Wellesley College should reallocate some of its 
sources into an investment fund for future internships, in 
Los Angeles and anywhere else. 

And when and if the money is ever reallocated Jo the in- 
ternship programs, some additional progress could be made 
in revision of the programs, if the parties involved with the 
internship planning could stop politicking. 

Internships are too important to lose in Committee \ 
semantics and poor-pocketed administrators. 

Procedure for files 
Should start early 

Although the new law opening confidential records to 
students does not take effect until November 19, it is hoped 
that Dean Blake and the Administration will work without 
delay to establish the procedures whereby students can view 
their records. 

If the intent of the delay is merely to insure that past 
bonds of confidentiality are not illegally broken, and that 
there be a uniform procedure for examination of the 
records, then as soon as such a procedure is developed, it 
should go into effect. 

If the procedures are not developed quickly and im- 
plemented before the deadline, forty-five days after 
November 19, then the Class of '75 will be stymied from ex- 
amining their records and files, which will be sent out this 
year. The Administration should recognize the concern on 
the part of graduating seniors over the content of their files, 
particularly their letters of recommendation. 

The procedure by which student files and records can be 
obtained by the student should be a priority matter with the 
Administration, one which is dealt with with all due haste. 



Winter term: a reality 



To the Editor: 

Wc were very upset to read in 
last week's NEWS an article on 
Winter Term 75 which gave the 
definite impression that Winter 
Term was in danger of not taking 
place. This, as we pointed out in 
our first letter to NEWS 2 weeks 
ago. is not at all the case. Winter 
Term is now a reality. It will be 3 
weeks long, from January 13 to 
31. Students will be able to come 
back anytime on or after January 
II. Meals will be provided in the 
dorms that are open, which will 
number as many as is economical- 
ly feasible. 

Great pains a,re being taken to 
insure the safety of all students' 
possessions during this period. 



Storage will be provided in the 
open dorms, and special contracts 
will be signed between the occu- 
pant of a room and the temporary 
resident, whether or not she is a 
personal friend (which she will be 
in the majority of cases). 

The Residence Policy Com- 
mittee is fully behind us in our 
promise to make every effort 
possible to accommodate those 
students who live in the open 
dorms (yet unknown) during the 
year, and who will not be here 
during January. 

Winter Term this year IS a 
reality. It now is not a question of 
"if, but of "how many".

Library offers students chance 
To vote on reserve book system 



To the Editor: 

A recent letter to the NEWS 
raised questions about the 
library's reserve book system, and 
offered suggestions to improve it. 
The library staff agrees that the 
present system has problems, and 
the Library Policy Committee is 
ready to take action as soon as 
student opinion on the issue has 
been canvassed. During the next 
two weeks all students will have 
the chance to vote between the 



present system and a modified 
system, and to comment on the 
proposed modifications. Between 
October 1 1 and 25 a questionnaire 
describing the two systems will be 
available outside the reserve cage. 
The questionnaire is also a ballot, 
and we encourage concerned 
students to register their views.

Chairman, Library 
Policy Committee 



Centennial committee 
Invites participation 



There seems to be some confusion about News's policy 
on letters to the editor. All letters are published in full, 
and every letter is published. We do ask letter writers to 
limit their comments to a reasonable length, although we 
will run longer letters, upon request. 

The Letters to the Editor column has always served as 
an open forum for the College community, allowing 
response to NEWS editorials and comments on campus 
events. All comments are solicited and will be printed

To the Editor: 

Communication or lack thereof 
is a familiar concern of the college 
community. It has been lamented 
thai despite the presence of stu- 
dent representatives on Academic 
Council committees, student opi- 
nion is not heard or perhaps not 
considered. 

With respect to the Centennial 
Committee, I believe that the 
students arc not being sufficiently 
informed. There are many plans 
underway for faculty-sponsored 
events similar to the current 
program on Surrealism or the 
past Medieval one, and student in- 
put would no doubt be welcome. 
However, students do not know 
what subjects are being developed. 
It is not surprising there seems to 
be relatively low student par- 
ticipation in centennial planning. 

Similarly students can lake the 
initiative to plan an event or 



program completely on their own, 
be it intellectual or social. But 
who really is aware of this oppor- 
tunity? 

It is my purpose to call 
everyone's attention to a column 
that will appear on page 5 of 
NEWS announcing (I) a calendar 
of coming events, (2) the in- 
dividual sponsors to contact if one 
is interested in working on a par- 
ticular program, and (3) general 
progress of the Centennial 
celebration. 

I will be happy to speak with 
anyone who is interested in joining 
the Centennial Student Subcom- 
mittee or who might have 
suggestions for a student 
program. A centennial only comes 
once. Take advantage of being 
here during Wellesley's. 

Sarah Lichtenstein 75 
Chairman, Student Committee 



Do students care too? 



To the Editor: 

Why aren't undergraduates 
participating in the College's 
Centennial campaign? When I 
was an undergraduate we raised 
$10,000.00 in one year toward the 
Seventy-Fifth Campaign Fund. 
As an alumna I have continued to 



work for Wellesley's students. 
When undergraduates express 
confidence in Wellesley, it 
validates my years of concern. Do 
students care too?

Sexism condemned 



To the Editor. 

What freshwomen at Wellesley 
will need most is to overcome 
toleration of being represented by 
the Wellesley NEWS if it con- 
tinues to portray Wellesley 
students in the manner of the 
September 13th editorial: 
Tolerant freshmen (sic) ... If, in- 
stead of learning the subtle dis- 
tinction between caller and visitor, 
students were asked to distinguish 
between an efficient, nonsexist 
system of announcing guests and a 
method which encourages social 
game-playing; if, instead of going 
to an annual Cattle Show, these 
women were encouraged to attend 
mixers as equals but to feel free to 
initiate social action to reach the 



desired end of meeting people, 
and in accepting that liberty 
simultaneously accepting the 
responsibility of dealing with peo- 
ple rather than learning evasive 
tactics to avoid unwanted callers, 
then in all good faith, such 
editorials and representation 
could be taken as humorous. As it 
is. too many Wellesley students 
don't object to being represented 
in this fashion; and at this point, 
the editorial lies far too close to 
the truth. I hope that the class of 
1978 will lake a firm stand on 
these (and related) issues. A lot 
can be accomplished in thirty 
weeks.

Food service replies 
To "Starving for Info" 



Dear Starving for Information: 

I am grateful for the opportuni- 
ty to respond to the remarks in 
your editorial last week. There are 
often a lot of complaints about 
our Food Service, but rarely do 
people take the time to come in 
and talk, or to write down their 
specific ideas. Somehow this is a 
campus-wide disease: people fre- 
quently gripe but fail to bring it to 
the attention of those who could 
respond. Let me try to answer 
some of the questions which you 
raised and provide further infor- 
mation where possible. 

1. Last spring our old cash 
register broke and was in need of 
massive and expensive repair. We 
were loaned a register while vvc 
decided what to do. The result was 
the computerized register which 
made the HAL 9000 appear 
gracious, compatible, and un- 
complicated by comparison. That 
beeping, paper-splitting monster 
has been removed and replaced by 
a conventional machine which we 
hope will meet the needs of our 
operation. 

2. One needs to understand the 
budget machinations of the 
College to understand why we 
purchased a register and could not 
subsidize our prices. The fact is 
that we are budgeted a certain 
amount ($65.000/yr.) for 
purchasing food. We also have an 
equipment budget designed to 
meet our minimum equipment 
needs in the building. The cash 
register was a purchase from the 
latter category. 

3. You arc correct in your 
assertion that Schneider Center is 
already subsidized by the College 
It costs somewhat over SI 90.000 
to operate the Center for one year. 
Our Food Service grosses a little 
over SI 25.000. 

4. We tried the Deli-bar during 
the evening for more than a week 
earlier this semester. There was 
apparently very low demand; wc 
were selling less than five 
sandwiches from the Deli-bar 
each evening. However, we will 
try it again next week in the 
evenings to see if there is more de- 
mand than before. 

5. We do sell soup during the 
cold weather months. However, as 
with the Deli-bar, we often sell so 
little that some must be thrown 



away. We arc glad that you have 
enjoyed the hot cider. We have 
enjoyed selling it. However, the 
company from whom we purchase 
the cider is going out of business, 
and wc may not be able to offer it 
any longer. Needless to say, we all 
must be sensitive to the costs of 
food in this time ofgross inflation. 
Incidentally, our 40' bagel in- 
cludes cream cheese. Prices may 
be bizarre, but the day of the 40 c 
plain bagel is hopcfolly at least a 
few weeks away. 

6. Speeding up our lines is one 
of our biggest problems. We hope 
to experiment with a second cash 
register during some of our peak 
hours. 

I hope that this will not be the 
end of dialogue about our Food 
Service between those of us here 
at Schneider Center and the 
College Community. We will con- 
tinue to try to do what we can to 
meet the needs of our customers. 
My office is always open and I 
*would be more than happy to dis- 
cuss such problems and concerns. 
Also the Schneider Board of 
Governors has a Management 
Committee which functions to 
solicit and act upon ways in which 
the entire Center can better serve 
the College Community. 

Wc want the entire community 
to realize that we do the best we 
can with the resources at our dis- 
posal and with the many things 
which are beyond our control. We 
hope to be able to continue 
providing innovations such as the 
Deli-bar, beer. wine, and pizza 
which little over a year ago were 
nothing more than dreams on our 
(culinary) horizons.

Economic Summit: A Cure For Our 

His or Only a Facelift? 



WELLESLEY NEWS 



By Eileen Conroy *7S balanced package wiihoul a 

revenue loss or gain. An in- 
novative idea proposed is low in- 
come tax relief lo correct 
m-causcd inequities with a 
ncomc tax sur- 



lii the aftermalh of the. 
economic summit conference, the 
question paramount in the minds 
of the American consumer is: will 
the meetings result in another 
round of cosmetic facelifting of 
America's economic ills, or will it 
lead to the adoption of construc- 
tive proposals to counteract the 
twin evils or inflation and un- 
employment? 

the problem is clearly defined 
with an unemployment rate of 
S.8%> and an increase in the 
wholesale price index of 3.9% for 
the months of July and August, 
translated lo a compounded un- 
nual rate of 58%. Solutions, 
however, are quite elusive, since 
what alleviates one problem often 
aggravates the other, so that 
economists must strike a delicate 
balance in the tradeoff between in- 
flation and unemployment. 

One hopeful note in (he im- 
plementation or economic policy 
was Ford's announcement of the 
creation of an Economic Policy 
Board with Treasury Secretary 
Simon as its director and C. 
William Seidman as its economic 
policy coordinator. This ap- 
paratus supplants the troika of 
Kenneth Rush as mediator of the 
perennial bickering between OMB 
Director Roy Ash and Treasury 
Secretary Simon. IKl is lo be 
hoped that this policy board will 
mitigate the tendency I observed 
this summer (as an intern al the 
Treasury Department) of each 
economic agency becoming Ihe 
personal fiefdom of its director, 
with little overall coordination of 
economic policy. 

Concerning substantive issues, 
the Ford administration echoed 
the Nixon line of adhering to the 
old-lime religion, pledging to keep 
government expenditures less than 
S300 billion. SS.4 billion less than 
current projections. The justifica- 
tion behind such fiscal austerity is 
that a reduced demand of federal 
borrowing will ease pressure on 
interest rates. Yet. with this policy 
tool of budget cutting, the 
economist confronts the dilemma 
that the budget cutting may act as 
.in adverse effect on the un- 
employment rale, rather than as a 
dampener of inflationary 
pressures. If GNP declines, Ihe 
automatic stabilizer of the 
progressive income tax structure 
results in a decrease in federal 
revenues, thus worsening a poten- 
tial deficit. 

In the realm of fiscal revenues, 
the administration aims for a 



corresponding 59! 

charge on higher income levels.' 

A measure for alleviating un- 
employment is directed al the 
stagnant home building industry. 
:i leading indicator or the business 
cycle. It would allow a deduction 
on the first S500. to SI, 000. 
savings account inters! in order to 
cheek the record drainage or 
mortgage funds to higher yielding 
credit instruments. The energy 
czar s pet anti-inflation measure is 
a gasoline excise tax of S.IO per 
gallon, lorecast to yield S8 billion 
in revenues. 

Its value as a disincentive i>> 
luel use however, would be depen- 
dent on the price elasticity or gas- 
oline, whether quantity consumed 
changes by ,, greater percentage 
than price. Moreover, such an ex- 
cise tax would counteract the las 
relief measures, ir its incidence 
was borne most heavily by Ihe 
working poor. 

Despite the lambasting or Fed. 



Chairman Arthur Burns, there 
was only ihe promise or a 
moderate and gradual easing >il 
Lredit conditions. As anli- 
inrialion measures, several 
economists advocated the 
elimination or laws which limit 
competition and productivity in 
order lo mitigate Ihe downwardly 
rigid price structure. Senator 
Javits revived the WPA concept in 
his $4 billion program of 500,000 
jobs whenever the unemployment 
rate is greater than b'"< for three 
consecutive months. 

The economic summit served a 
useful purpose in generating fresh 
approaches to ola problems, and 
in stressing the administration's 
commitment lo come lo grips with 
the nation's economy. However, il 
is imperative that Ihe administra- 
tion pursue its program in a con- 
sistent manner, ralher than Ihe 
haphazard and politically- 
motivated policies or ihe past 
years. Otherwise Ihe psy- 
chological element or inflalion. 
consumer expectations, will lead 
lo price increase in anticipation of 
another round of disastrous wage 
price controls.

Zagoria: Sino — Soviet Split 



By Donald S. Zagoria 
Barnctte Miller Lecturer 



Editor's note: The following arti- 
cle was submitted to NEWS by 
the third Barnette Miller lecturer, 
Donald S. Zagoria of Hunter 
College. The length of the article 
prohibits a full publication and 
has made ralher drastic editing 
necessary. Part 2 will be printed 
next week. A copy of the full piece 
can be obtained from the NEWS 
office. 

My purpose in this article is lo 
make the case lhal if, in 1949, the 
United Stales had recognized the 
new Chinese Communist regime, 
exploited Mao's long-standing 
suspicions or Stalin, catered to 
China's nalional interest and ex- 
pressions or desire Tor American 
support, Ihe Sino-Sovict split 
would have erupted much earlier. 
Moreover, in such 

circumstances, the Chinese 
might not have intervened in Ihe 
Korean War, Washington might 
not have fell compelled lo fight in 
Vietnam against what it thought 
to be Chinese expansionism via its 
Hanoi proxy, and the eniire 
course of Ihe postwar world might 
have been different. 

Instead, shortsighted American 
policy in 1949 dictated by a com- 
bination of internal American 



Junior Show 

Retrospective on a Wellesley Tradition 



By Debra Knopman '75 

Considering thai Junior Show 
is the most prominent expression 
or group creativity al Wellesley, il 
would be a missed opportunity lo 
not try lo catch a glimpse beyond 
the Gwcneth Gnome and M.I.T. 
mixer jokes. What constitutes a 
joke at Wellesley or Tor lhal 
mailer, what are on people's 
minds to joke about. Perhaps such 
generalities do not seem valid. Tor 
diametric reactions to Junior 
Shows are certainly voiced. But 
after seeing (he last four shows, il 
is not thai difficult to sense which 
ones pleased ihe crowds. 

In Ihe fall or 1971, Ihe show en- 
titled "Keep It Green" centered 
around Ihe threat or turning Lake 
Waban into a football stadium 
(Wellesley huving jusl turned co- 
ed), Students were split in two Tac- 
tions, and in essence became an 



ideological bailie of priorities — 
roolball vs. crew. Il should, be 
noled lhal the show ihe previous 
year (1970) attempted to create a 
serious show. By no coincidence; 
Ihe class of '72 which wrolc lhal 
show was ihe core of Wellesley's 
mosl intense political activity in' 
its recent history. Then the 
sophomores watched this new ap- 
proach and completely rejected it. 
Consequently, "Keep it Green" 
reflected lhal adversity to 
seriousness on the one hand, and 
on the other, unconsciously ex- 
hibited Ihe activist terms in which 
Ihcy thought — an issue leading lo 
a debate leading to a strike. The 
show was a healthy success. 

Generally considered a flop, 
ncverlhclcss, Ihe following year's 
show was daring. Whal the 
writers hit al was the tense but 
seldom discussed racial situation 
at Wellesley. The audience 



Chaplaincy Sponsors Action Group 



By Dave Gagne 
Chaplaincy Associate 

In 1970 Wellesley College 
women went on strike in response 
to the U.S. invasion of Cambodia 
and the Ken! Stale and Jackson 
Slate killings. During and after 
Ihe strike they joined with 
Wellesley townspeople to create 
Wellesley Alliance to Move Our 
Society (Wellesley AMOS). 
Wellesley AMOS, with the sup- 
port and participation of these 
students, sponsored draft counsel- 
ing in Ihe town, a weekly vigil for 
peace in the town square and 
other anliwar activities for more 
than Tour years. 

Today Wellesley AMOS 
continues — on Ihe campus of 
Wellesley College as well as in the 
town of Wellesley. 

The Alliance (members now 
refer to themselves this way, a 
reflection of a broader focus on 
many issues of justice and peace 
as well as a stronger emphasis on 
the need lo build alliances 
between individuals and groups to 
bring about change) is an inter- 
laith coalition — an alliance — of 
townspeople and studenls. clergy 
and laity, young and old. Our 
goals are broad — lo build a com- 
munity of justice and peace. Our 
•-irategy is to join with other 
students and townspeople in 
Wellesley lo raise serious issues of 
justice and peace in the context of 
an afiluent, middle-class com- 
munily, 

This year the activities of the 
members of Ihe Alliance are 
, directed towards two areas: 

— peace education. 

— issues of Ihe 3rd World

The members of the Alliance 
are joining with others lo try to 
raise our awareness of the issues

lo identify some practical course 
of action which might be available 
to us in bringing about change. 
We are focusing on such issues 
as Ihe continued role onhe U.S. in 
Indochina, the problem of world 
hunger and scarcity, the issues of 
3rd World development and the 



study and support of 3rd World 
liberation movements. We see our 
own growth in awareness and 
liberation from limiting choices 
as part or our effort in this area. 

Our efforts are the efforts of a- 
small group of people who believe 
change is needed. Our hope is that 
through study and analysis we can .

noticeably squirmed, especially 
when a group of black women 
belted out the song "We Can't 
Tell Them Apart." Mocking Ihe 
"problem" some whites have in 
identifying one black rrom 
another, the song turned (he 
tables; that is, blacks not able to 
distinguish one while rrom 
another. In classical Junior Show 
standards, the song along with ihe 
show was loo honest, too true, and 
loo blatant lo be good. 

In 1973. the Centennial Class 
chose to harmoni/e some of 
Wellesley's more memorable 
historic events wilh a dose of old 
fashion Junior Show humor. The 
food. Dean Melvin. and Claflin 
seemed to bear the brunt. But the 
extraneous character or Bert (he 
'Vert captured ihe hearls or all. 
Essentially, the show had no roots 
in Ihe world beyond Welleslcj as 
Ihe year before deall with bfuck 
and while, and ihe year before 
that dealt with student activism. 
As a member or the '75 Cape 
Committee, I recall the discussion 
lhal ensued while forming ihe 
plot; no politics, no Watergate, no 
moralizing. This was not lhal sur- 
prising, since we all had jusl en- 
dured a summer watching Sam 
Ervin and Co. tear away al our 
fearful leaders. National affairs 
were loo depressing to be funny. 

And then ihere was Ihis year's 
show. Admittedly, it was a very 
entertaining and slick production. 
I did not want lo take (he show 
seriously (lhal thought had not 
entered my mind before seeing il). 
Unfortunately, certain scenes 
demanded lhal Ihe audience not 
laugh. In particular, the scene 
where/Rosie crooned her love 



politics and gross American ig- 
norances about Ihe relationships 
within Ihe Communist world, 
forced Peking into Moscow's em- 
brace 

The burden of my case rests on 
two contentions thai I will try to 
demonstrate with documentary 
evidence. The first contention is 
that Ihe relations between Mao 
and Stalin in the thirties and for- 
ties, indeed right up lo Stalin's 
death in 1953. were relations or 
deep mutual mistrust and suspi- 
cion. Statin believed that Mao 
was a potential Tilo and con- 
sistency regarded him, us he 
regarded all "Nalional Com- 
munists" — Communists wilh in- 
dependent bases or power — wilh 
enormous suspicion. He repeated- 
ly — but unsuccessfully — sought 
to make a satellite or ihe Chinese 
Community Party (CCP), to in- 
lervene in its inlernal affairs and 
lo give it advice based on Ihe 
needs and interests or Ihe Soviet 
Union as Stalin perceived them. 

My second contention is that 
because or his suspicion or Stalin. 
Mao bid for American support as 
a counterweight lo exclusive 
dependence on Ihe Soviet Union 
right up to (he middle or 1949. Ihe 
year ihe Communists look power 
on the mainland. 

On June 28. 1949. Mao per- 
sonally inviled (American Am- 
bassador Leighlon) Stuart to Pek- 
ing in order lo continue the dis- 
cussions al the highest level, an in- 
itiativc lhal Ihe Stale Department 
recognized al the lime to be or 
enormous significance. But Presi- 
deni Truman vetoed Stuart's trip; 
lour days earlier, he had received 
a letter from twenty-one senators 
warning against recognition of 
Communist China. It was this 
rebuff by the Americans, ihe se- 
cond in four years, lhal resolved 
an ongoing debate within the 
Chinese Communist Parts 
between an "internationalist" fac- 
tion led by Liu Shao-ch'i that 
sought an exclusive alliance with 
Ihe Soviel Union, and a Mao- 
Chou faction lhal sought to 
balance an alliance wilh Stalin 
against a new relationship wilh 
America. 



Stalin's Attitude Toward Mao 

If hislory is (o be something 
hlher than a chronicle orevenls as 
Ihcy happened. Ihe Ihoughlfol 
hislorian must consider (he likely 
consequences of palhs that were 
not taken. 

The crucial insight concerning 
Stalin's altitude towards foreign 
Communist leaders is not (hat 
Stalin was indifferent lo ihe fate 
of communism oulside the Soviet 
Union, but that he was prepared 
10 sacrifice foreign Communists 
10 the inlersls or the USSR and 
his own power. 

The relationship between Mao 
and Stalin in the two decades 
prior lo the establishment or the 
Sino-Sovicl alliance in February, 
.1950 was one or dccp-sealcd 
mutual fours and suspicions. 
Slalin. for his pari, long 
suspected, nol without reason, 
lhal Mao, who came to power 
after a long struggle with ihe 
Comintern, was a potential 
"Tilo." Mao, for his pari, must 
have deeply resented Stalin's per- 
sistent efforts to intervene in the 
internal affairs of Ihe CCP, the 
subjugale it lo his own will and to 
Ihe needs of Stalin's policy, and to 
eradicate any traces of in- 
dependence. 

The relations belwecn the CCP 
and Moscow during ihe Yenan 
period arc still obscure. Radio 
contact was established belwecn 
Moscow and ihe Chinese Com- 
munists us early as 1936. Bui sub- 
sequent contact was maintained 
bs Stalin ihrough so-called Toss 
correspondents assigned to Yenan 
who were in fact agents or the 
Soviel secret police. According to 
one recent Soviel source, Mao 
surrounded ihesc Stalinist agents 
wilh security personnel or his own. 
kept them isolated, and regarded 
them wilh extreme suspicion. 

Once ihe Japanese invaded 
China in 1937. Mao and Slalin, 
for reasons or iheir own, worked 
towards the establishment ora un- 
ited front with Chiang Kai-shek's 
Nationalist Army. Mao sup- 
posed the Nationalist struggle 
against the Japanese in the double 
hope of preventing the Japanese 
conquest or China and increasing

song lo Pink, apologizing to him, 
was potentially ihe biggesl joke, 
bul no one laughed. Why was he 
nol apologizing (o her? 

Up lo this point, the balance or 
leiiimisi/anlileniinisl cuts was 
near even, enough so to keep ihe 
view of ihe writers ambiguous. 
However, this closing scene was 
insulting for precise!) the reason 
ihat the writers were serious. (If 
Ihis is loo harsh an interpretation, 
then I question why ihe song was 
not soflcncd by a touch or 
humor.) 

Along this line or deprecating 
images, the majoril\ or women 
characters in the show turned in 
extraordinarily convincing perfor- 
mances as mindless birds, whose 
life al Wellesley extended as far as 
iheir social life. Another example 



or ihis heavy-handed stereotyping 
»as (he innuendos cast on 
lesbianism und homosexuality. 

Whether one cares to admil il 
Junior Show does (ell a short 
story or some Wellesley women's 
perception or Wellesley and 
themselves. And does the story 
presented Ihis year offend anyone 
— Ihe familiar equation of 
"boyfriend" equals happiness, the 
void of references lo anything 
hc\ond Wellesley's borders (alias, 
the outside world), Ihe sick humor 
based on alternative sexual 
behavior? Or should we nol take 
the Show for anything more than 
a lighl attempt at low humor? 

I would prefer the latter ap- 
proach, but the slant of this year's 
show forced me to take a more 
critical look.

Summer internships: alternatives to conventional education 



Summer Internships can provide the student with on the 
job experience in a myriad of positions. They give what 
could be termed an education of the "real world'* of work. 
In this way, summer internships present an alternative to 
conventional education. 

Last summer, thirty-four Wellesley students participated 
in Wellesley sponsored internships. These internships 
reflected an almost infinite variety of jobs. All allowed a 
wide range of interaction with people of all social, economic 
and ideological backgrounds. 

Applications for the Wellesley Washington Internship 
and the Urban Internship which has branches in Boston and 
Los Angeles, are now available to juniors and qualified 
sophomores. Edward Steltmer of the Political Science 
Department is the Director of the Washington Internship. 
Helene Smookler, also of the Political Science Department 
is the Director of the Urban Internship. 

The following articles, each written by a summer 1974 in- 
tern, show what kind of opportunities are available within 
the framework of the Wellesley Internship programs. 
Future interns are in no way limited by the positions of 
former years. 

Also featured is the National Science Foundation 
Internship. Two Wellesley students participated in it during 
the summer of 1974. 



Boston: living in the city 



By Abby Franklin 75 

The summer l ( )74 Boston Ur- 
ban Politics Internship offered 
nine Wellesley women the oppor- 
tunity to experience city living and 
to pursue in depth a wide range of 
individual special interests and 
potential career choices. 

The ten week program per- 
muted the interns to investigate 
occupations that ran the gamut 
from urban health care, lo 
political organizing and lobbying, 
io policymaking in the fields of 
pollution, rent control, urban 
planning, and the media 

The program got off the ground 
in late May when the interns mov- 
ed into their residence in East 
Boston. Seven of the nine interns/ 
found home at I0S White St., the 



former EB-WELL house. Two of 
the interns lived at home with 
(heir families onl) a short distance 
away in Cambridge and Medford. 

The Boston Interns reported to 
their job placements, in early 
J line 

Roz Schoof '75 was based at 
Government Center where she 
worked for the U.S. Environmen- 
tal Protection Agency Boston 
Regional Office. Roz, researched 
and wrote informational papers 
on atmospheric sulfates for EPA 
staff. 

Pat Weems. '76 spent the 
summer around the State House. 
Pat worked for Boston Children's 
Sen ices and The Children's Cam- 
paign where she researched 
legislation on juveniles and acted 
as a political organizer. 



DC: summer city of students 



By Sandy Sugnwara '75 



LA interns have unique set-up 



By Florence Pat is '76 

The Los Angeles Urban 
Internship Program, an intensive 
summer of group activities and in- 
dividual assignments, differs 
greatly from Wellesley's other 
summer programs in Boston and 
Washington. D.C. 

Los Angeles-based alumnae 
have provided much of the fun- 
ding for the internship which is 
administered by the CORO Foun- 
dation, a nonprofit public affairs 
training institute- 
Interns with CORO develop 
new interviewing techniques and 
are expected to participate in 
group activities which vary in sub- 
stance and nature. 

This summer nine sophomores 
and juniors participated in a varie- 
ty of experiences from dinners at 
alumnae homes to interviews with 
civic leaders in the Los Angeles 
area. 

Each urban politics intern 
(there were six) had two separate 
assignments during the ten week 
internship period, ranging from a 
stint with a labor union to 
assignments with a local 
newspaper, the Hollywood Joint 
Health Center, and others 

Each of the three Suicide 
Prevention Center interns spent 
one day a week on the "crisis 
lines", and helped with ongoing 
therapy groups at the SPC drop- 
in Center. 

All nine interns agree that vir- 
tually every assignment turned 
out lo be a "good one", even the 
first week assignment at CORO. 

The interns were given 6 1/2 
days to research the question 
"Who Governs Women's Health 
Care in Los Angeles?" At the end 
of an "exhausting week", the in- 
terns presented their findings to a 
group of about thirty Wellesley 
alumnae CORO officers, and Jon 
Ellerlson. coordinator of the in- 
ternship programs last summer. 

The interns lived in the cit) of 
Los Angeles in three one-bedroom 
apartments Running jokes about 
Ihe admittedly spacious living 
quarters included: "After three 
years of batthng for a single at 



Wellesley, I suddenly had not one, 
hui iwo. roommates." 

I vcrj Wednesday evening, a 
different Wcllcslcj "alum" had 
interested interns over for dinner 
and. predictably, conversation, 
ranging from Watergate lo 
Wellesley. 

Contacts with the alumnae were 
very important lo the interns "I 
eucss I never expected I'd like 
them." said one intern. 

The alumnae not only fund the 
greater part of the program (ai 
least in the past). the) also 
arrange apartment rentals, 
dinners, interviews, and evenings 
at television studios. 

There were jaunts i,i Mexico. 
San Francisco, and. of course, Ihe 
beaches. 

All ol the interns reside east of 
the Mississippi — most had never 
been to California. The oppor- 
tunity for travel enticed all of the 
interns — and b) all accounts. 
California did not disappoint am 
of them. 

For ihe nine interns the in- 
ternship has not ended with the 
return lo school. Plans have been 
made for dinners and parlies. 
There will be meetings to discuss 
Ihe funding of future internship 
programs, an issue in the process

ternships on their own included 
Donna R o c h n with Sen. 
Schwcikcr, Lil Hair with Sen. Er- 
vin, and Barbara Friedman with 
the Watergate Committee. 

Ms. Sabino had a unique ex- 
perience as one of thirty-two in- 
terns in her office. "Michael likes 
lo be surrounded by bright young 
people and watch them compete 
againsl one another." explained 
Ms Sabino. 

Sen Schweiker's office was*' 
'liferent "If I had lo use one- 
word In describe our office, it 
would have lo be 'efficient*," said 
Ms. Roehn. 

The House Wednesday Group. 
a group of moderate lo liberal 
Republican Congressmen, look 
on Sarah I ichlcnsticn. The office 



was "small and friendly", and she 
was allowed much freedom. Her 
main project this summer was a 
study on capital punishment. 

Ann Moran worked in the Ad- 
ministration of Aging at HEW. 

Merriam Pannarella and Eileen 
Conroy worked at the Treasury 
Department. Dede Trefls worked 
at Ihe Justice Department. 

Ms. Moran said. "I never 
realized Ihe disorganized manner 
in which millions of dollars are just 
appropriated for a variety of good 
and bad programs." Ms. Conroy 
agreed, saying. "There are so 
many permanent people who 
don i have work to do. They could 
cut Ihe Malls b\ 7091 ' 

Debbie Knopmun worked at 
Science magazine, "The idea was 
lo learn as much about magazine 
work as possible. The first half of 
the summer I spent on the produc- 
tion end of it. The second half I 
spent writing." 

Gay del I Young had two 
placements. Her first was with 
public broadcasting, which turned 
out to he a poor choice. But Ms, 
Young had better luck on her se- 
cond try with the Lawyer's Com- 
mittee for Civil Rights. She was 
involved in two projects — one 
concerning school desegregation 
and the olher dealing with South 
Africa.

NSF: sociology meets science 



By Betsi Heller '76 
and Sandy Rovit '76 



Betsi Heller '76 and Sandy 
Rovit '76 were research team 
members this past summer on 
grants sponsored by the National 
Science Foundation. 

Sandy, an economics major, 
spent ten weeks at the New Mex- 
ico Institute of Mining and 
Technology. She studied attitudes 
towards education in Socorro, 
New Mexico. 

Betsi, an economics/political 
science major, evaluated Public 
Safely and Justice in Colorado 
Springs with a twelve-member 
group based at Colorado College. 

The purpose of the grants is to 
encourage research in Ihe field of 
chemist rj , biology, environmental 
studies, economics, psychology, 
and sociology. 

Belsi's project was entitled "A 
Socio-Environmental Study of 
Colorado Springs." The purpose 
was to measure various com- 
ponents of the urban and natural 
environments, similar to recent 
"Quality of Life" studies. Ms. 
Heller worked with officials in the 
poljcc, courts, and correctional 
lauliiies in an attempt to measure 
'he level and effectiveness of the 



services provided. 

This information was analyzed 
lo develop primitive social in- 
dicators, Previous indicators of 
police effectiveness were Police 
staff/city population ratios. Ad- 
ditionally. Betsi worked on a 
public safely and crime victimiza- 
tion survey. 

Sandy's project was entitled 
"Crosscultural Analysis of At- 
titudes toward Education in 
Socorro, New Mexico." An 
achievement difference was noted 
between Spanish and Anglo 
Americans in Socorro High 
School. The study assumed that 
this difference was due to an at- 
litudinal rather than an in- 
telligence discrepancy between the 
two culture groups. 

It was an invaluable experience 
in a variety of ways — working 
with a diverse group of people, 
learning and perfecting research 
and statistical techniques, and liv- 
ing and experiencing differenl 
lifestyles. 

Both interns expect publication 
of their projects sometime this 
year.

All members of the College com- 
munity arc welcome. 

The purpose of this new club is 
to encourage and promote 
stimulating conversation on an in- 
formal basis on a wide variety of 
subjects that are not frequently 
discussed. 

Films, theatre, magic, art, new 
concepts, and sea monkeys, arc 
some of the subjects envisioned 
lor discussion. Talk of Wellesley, 
homework, teachers, classes, and 
boyfriends is strictly forbidden. 
This is the the only rule of the 
Club. There are no other 
obligations, fees or commitments. 

Nadja will meet on a different 
night each week so that a wide 
variety of people will be able to 
tome. Announcements will be 
made in INDEX. 

The name Nadja, taken from 
the surrealist writer, Andre 
Breton, refers to an extraordinary 
woman who was able to break 
away from pedestrian thinking 
and elevate her consciousness to 
an emancipated conception of 
reality. The Nadja Ealing Club 
aspires to Ihc same goal. 



Hot Lips for Rosie Cheeks 



Making Melodic Futures 



By Cindy Greve "75 



What do Wellesley Music ma- 
jors do after Ihey graduate? Are 
they prepared lo continue in their 
field, and if so what kind of career 
can they expect? 

E. Kerala Johnson Snyder '57 
majored in music, and has come, 
by a circuitous path, lo be an 
Assistant Professor of music 
history al Yale. 

Her experiences immediately 
after graduation taught her what 
she did not want lo do. She began 
studying at the Harvard School of 
Divinity, while taking organ al the 
New England Conservatory. 

At Harvard, Ms. Snyder quick- 
ly realized three things. A music 
Ph.D. would lake less lime to earn 
than a Ph.D. in theology, and the 
job market for a music scholar 
would be easier. Perhaps most im- 
portantly, she missed devoting 
most of her lime lo music. 

Ms. Snyder lefl Divinity School 
and was married. During the 
following several years she con- 
tinued playing organ, in addition 
to working one year as a 
secretary, moving lo Iwo different 
ciiies, and having three children. 



Zagoria, continued 



In 1964, when she was organist 
for a church in Scline, Michigan, 
Ms. Snyder received a 
Presbyterian Graduate 
Fellowship, paying her luilion 
plus a slipend loward a Ph.D. in 
music history al Yale. 

Because she had ihc respon- 
sibilities of raising children. Yale 
had refused to admit her until she 
found an outside source of fun- 
ding. 

"When my children had 
chicken pox I still managed (o get 
my seminar papers written." she 
stales. 

Having received her degree in 
1970. Ms. Snyder now leaches a 
graduate course in Baroque 
music. In addition, she is involved 
with Yale's Early Concentration 
Program for freshman music 
majors. 

Several more recent alumnae 
have also done graduate work: 
Kathleen Chaikin '67 will receive 
a Ph.D. in musicology from Stan- 
lord in 1975. and Margaret 
Johnston '73 has jusl con\pleled a 
masters degree al Yale. 

Christy Harms '75 is applying 
lo law schools, bul will "continue 
to enjoy music." 



Marilyn Chohaney '75 majors 
in music and chemistry; she plans 
lo attend medical school, earning 
money al the same time by play- 
ing the flute. 

Since she has been al Wellesley, 
Ms. Chohaney has played wiih the 
Harvard/Radcliffe Orchestra, the 
Bach Society Orchcslra, and 
several chamber music groups. 
She plays occasional jobs with 
Boston area opera orchestras. 

Ms. Chohaney is critical of the 
music deparlmenl. especially its 
preparation of the major for a 
career in performing. As one ex- 
ample, ihe deparlmenl offers no 
course in solfege. Ihe skill of sight- 
singing. 

"The department's aim is not lo 
encourage people with Ihe career 
goals that I have. The Wellesley 
music major has nol prepared me 
lor a career in performance." 

This failure to guide students 
into professional performing, Ms. 
Chohaney feels, differentiates it 
from the music dcparlments of 
many other schools. 

She cites in addition a lack of 
advanced theory courses, and a 
heavy emphasis on Baroque and 
Renaissance music, al the expense 
nl nineteenth and twentieth cen- 
turv studies 



continued from page 3 
Communist strength in North 
China by appealing to broad 
nationalist sentiments. Stalin, for 
his part, sought to check the 
Ihrcal of an expanding Japanese 
militarism. 

To sum up this portion of the 
argument, the evidence is 
overwhelming thai as of 1949-50, 
on the eve of the Korean War, 
relations between Mao and Stalin 
were charged with mutual fear 
and suspicions. An alliance 
belween Peking and Moscow was 



probable once the Cold War be- 
gan, both for ideological reasons 
and because the U.S., by its in- 
tervention in Ihe Chinese Civil 
War. had shown itself to be hostile 
lo the CCP. But the nature of the 
Sino-Soviel alliance was still very 
much in question. Indeed, there 
exists compelling evidence which 
shows that Mao and Chou En-lai 
both wanted an alliance with the 
Soviet Union to be balanced with 
diplomatic and economic 
relations wilh the U.S.

Sports perspective: 
Mary Young '76 



Economics 
of sport 



Newman has a Lark, 
Cops second at M.I.T. 



Aihleiic equipment und the 
personnel 10 run aihleiic games 
come with price lugs, as everyone 
surely kn.n\s. Thus behind every 
single game there's a financial 
network that put the game on. 

Seems elementary, io go gel 
some money and play some 
games At Wclleslcy. the Sports 
Association gels some money and 
some games are played. The 
economics of this is easy — there 
arc allocations and expenditures. 
Wclleslcy *sS. A. plrys ihcgame 
lo the tunc of $3,042.24 or SOFC 
funds, with another S 1000 chipped 
in by i Ik P.E. deparlmenl for 
transportation. As (he demand in- 
creases lor sporls and the price- 
lags go up. S.A. wishes H had 
more money, and the issue is noi a 
small one on campus. 

Meanwhile, out in the Real 
World, lots more people are lr\- 
ing io make a living in the sporls 
world (Make a living, what's 
llwt'l) They mean business 

The sporls induslry. (business, 
profession, whul-huve-you), isn'i 
dissimilar to other industries; 
there's a produei to be sol, I In 
sellers Io you and me. It's a game, 
a piece of equipment, or a skill 

The economics lhal bug the 
corporations hug the sporls enter- 
prises, loo. 

The Brookings Institution 
studied the sporls induslry with an 
eye towards this heretofore un- 
touched economic facet In July, 
(he New York Times reported 
some of their findings: 

"Tax write-offs rather than 
operating profits are what count 
wiih most pro sports owners." 

"Local governments in major 
sporls cities are siihsidi/ing teams 
h\ at leasl S23 million a year, with 



low rentals lhal have kept most 
newly built public stadiums from 
recovering operating costs 

"Tickel prices are not related lo 
player salaries but (o the 
economic law of supply and 
demand " 

"Income from broadcasting is 
vital lo the sports business, ac- 
counting for as much as 30 to 40 
percent ol the gross revenues of 
some teams " 

"Congress is i be likeliest source 
ol fundamental change m sports 
operations, other than in player 
relations It has the power to undo 
the effects of past legislation lake 
steps lo reduce the financial dis- 
parities among teams, . and con- 
duct investigations 

Meanwhile, a pro football 
pluyer named Jim Olio said, 
"Why doesn't the IRS. allow us 
10 depreciate our bodies over i 
period ol sears so that we can 
keep more of the money we 
make?" (Same New York Times) 
Sound complicated? Ii is 
Sporls is big business, like clothes 
and food and cars. It's become 
thai way. only since World War II; 
witness the NBA. which began in 
I 'Mi. It is not hard lo parallel the 
development of big-time sports 
with increasing incomes and 
leisure lime, both postwar 
phenomena. 

The main thing is to keep the 
mushrooming sporls field in 
perspective, as another industry 
that seeks dollars of fans lo sur- 
vive and profil: lo rise above these

Wclleslcy narrowly defeated 
Jackson, 1-0. in field hockey lasl 
Vi cdncsday in their first game of 
ihe season. 

The game's single score came 
midway through Ihe first half 
when left wing Lisa Greene '77 
fired uncontested from aboul 
eight leel away. 

The goal came soon after Clare 
Swanger, '76, righl inner, hit the 
right goal post wilh a drive. Coach 
Sheila Brown's learn played well 
in the first half, sparked by a 
llashy forward line and the light- 
ning stick work of center halfback 
Shelby Riddle '76. the captain. 

Bui the squad played down to 
Jackson's level in Ihe second half, 
said one halfback after the game, 
and two strong Jackson players. 
Ihe goalie and center halfback, 
thwarted many Wcllesley drives. 
Spectators noticed also Jackson's 
crowding offense, which brought 
main \\ clleslcy defenders close to 
the goal and created confusion. 

The second team won, 2-0, on 
goals h\ Kate Farnsworth '77 and 
Cherie German '75.
